[plt-scheme] url rewriting

Yes, it is possible.

Implement a custom dispatcher [1] that does the rewriting, then use
your own dispatching sequencing and put the rewriting dispatcher at
the start. Everything "will just work". Send me the code and I can
then integrate it. Basically you want:

; make : (url? -> url?) (conn? req? -> void) -> (conn? req? -> void)
(define (make url->url inner)
 (lambda (conn req)
  (inner conn (update-request-url req (url->url (request-url req))))))


1. See new documentation, in SVN after `mzscheme -mvt
